Mouth of the River

Ore freighter Buffalo making its way up the Cuyahoga River past Cleveland Browns Stadium and downtown Cleveland. Look largest down the right side to see four different types of bridges; the railroad lift bridge, the abandoned jackknife RR bridge next to Shooters, the Rt. 2 modern highway bridge, and the elegant Superior Ave. bridge. Cleveland Browns Stadium tells us its SAT JUN 14.

 

This is the river that burned. It's lots cleaner now. Sometimes cited as a contributor to the creation of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) in the USA.

 

Pano created with three pictures shot from the walk next to the abandoned Coast Guard station at the back of Wendy Park. Exposures taken with a 50 mm lens, 50 ISO, @ 1/640s,f/5 and stitched with hugin.

 

Why does this picture belong to the "Rusty and Crusty" group?

 

It pays homage to the start of the rust-making process with a view of the ore boat making its way down the Cuyahoga River to the steel mill.

 

And it features the skyline of the capital of the rust belt- Cleveland Ohio!
